@ blackwingcat gigabyte neXtreme Ethernet driver:
I tried to use downloaded inf with both sys files, always yellow exclamation mark. Now I am not sure if the driver is broken or my "installation" does not work. Short info:
I could not install windows 2000 on macbook pro because of incompat mac "efi" loader so I copied image from older pc (acpi, but single core) to macbook (dual core, sata without ahci - intel 3B28) and tried to boot this. It boots (if used atapi, pciidex, and pciide from xp32) and shows prompt for install new hardware, but: no keyboard, no mouse, no LAN - special usb architecture on macbook. So I am not able to use the "installation". I can use .bat or .exe copied to autostart folder, for example I used devmgmt.msc to inspect devmgr (only shows few devices because of vga mode) or I installed intel chipset driver with -S option, but I was not able to install usb devices. So I installed broadcom neXtreme LAN driver and netmeeting remote desktop BEFORE putting image to the macbook. I hoped that I could control the macbook with remote desktop. But any broadcom LAN driver installed this way will not work.
I would like to try the neXtreme driver on a system with working mouse, so I can check the reason for exclamation mark. But for this I have to use a script for usb driver installation in autostart folder, or perhaps I could use a script for LAN driver to install directly on the macbook. Perhaps I also should uninstall some more hardware components before tranferring the image or also add more inf of system devices.
It is a matter of time, please be patient with me.
Do you know a way to force driver installation mode like in gui setup mode from tranferred image so there are no prompts?
